Superlongevity Without Overpopulation

The latest Longevity Meme article, by Max More of the Extropy Institute, addresses common Malthusian concerns about overpopulation in a world of greatly extended human life spans. Simply put, fears of overpopulation are no more than fears - and Max More handily shows why this is the case. As he says, "We would be severely misguided not to push for extended life out of fear of overpopulation. Let us move full speed ahead with extending life span." This article is one of many excellent pieces that can be found in The Scientific Conquest of Death: Essays on Infinite Lifespans, a book published by the Immortality Institute.
